It’s been one whole month since I blogged. Yep. 4 weeks. 30(ish) days. Oops. But here I am, back again.
My break from blogging was accidental. I didn’t intend on leaving it so long before I got back in the game and started writing content again. April was a mad month. A weird month. One I’m almost going to pretend didn’t happen.
I got struck down with flu and a sinus infection to start with; never good. I spent pretty much two weeks in bed, surrounded by boxes of Kleenex and Vitamin C drinks, feeling terribly sorry for myself whilst watching The Big Bang Theory reruns on Netflix. I’m the world’s worst patient and get bored and fed up so easily plus, I get that terrible ‘I’m not at work’ guilt which is the last thing I really needed.
I got better. Work was mad. I felt like I was playing catch up constantly. I didn’t have time to see my friends, go to the gym…it was all a bit manic. It seemed like life was running away from me so quickly and I didn’t know how to slow it down but at the same time, I didn’t feel like I was achieving much.
Then, as soon as I got better and back to a routine, my lovely Toby got poorly. Like, really poorly. He spent a few days in hospital and is thankfully home now and on the mend. But that threw me too. It’s amazing how all consuming life’s dramas can be.
Anyway, enough moaning. I’m back now and ready to take on the world. Well, not quite. But I really do want to get back to blogging and taking photos and generally just being creative.
I’m considering jazzing up my blog soon to make it a place I’m more proud of visually – perhaps then I’ll feel more inspired with my content too.
If I’ve learnt anything over the past month or so it’s this: When life gives you 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 100 reasons to smile. I love that quote. Finding happiness and calm during a storm can be tricky but in the end, it’s all that gets you through.
